    Stolen gear at NAB
    #1
    Default
    Hey All. There was some gear stolen from Lectrosonics and Zaxcom this year at NAB. I am good friends with both companies, so I am spreading the word for everyone to keep a lookout for the following items listed below. From what I hear Petrol had a camera stolen from them as well, but I don't have the details on that yet. I know we have readers from all over the globe, so I ask that everyone keep an eye out. This stuff could end up anywhere on earth considering that we had people from all over at NAB. If you see something that looks too good to be true on craig's list or ebay, or even in your local pawn shop, let me know immediately. Here is the list:

    Well, the Zaxcom theft happened sometime between Wednesday night the Thursday morning. They take down all their gear and lock it in Pelican cases that are underneath their covered tables. Whoever stole it just grabbed the cases and walked out with them. The Lectro stuff was stolen after final tear down on Thursday. Larger companies like that have their gear packed up and in cases, and then the gear is loaded out and shipped back to Lectro. The Lectro theft happened during that time, when nobody from Lectro was around. I have never heard of this volume of high priced gear getting stolen. Usually it's something small like a mic or two. Nothing on this scale.

    Me too. I'm regularly checking the typical online selling places for gear. It could take a long time, but hopefully it will get found. That, or some overseas manufacturer nabbed the gear to try and reverse engineer it.

    The gear was stolen "after hours" when the show was closed for the evening, or, in the case of Lectro, it was taken after tear down and all the gear was packed up and ready for shipping. Typically what will happen with manufacturers that don't drive the gear in themselves is they'll have the gear shipped right to their booth, and after tear down on the last day, the'll pack it all up, label it, and leave it to be picked up for shipping. It was after it was packed and labeled and the Lectro guys left that the gear was stolen. The thing is, you have no idea when the gear will be picked up. It could be picked up 10 minutes after you leave, or picked up the next day, so you can't expect them to sit there until it leaves. The whole idea is that we, as manufacturers, trust that the NAB people will take care of our stuff once we hand it off to them after the show. Obviously this did not happen with Lectro. We also expect that there will be security patrolling the show floor at night when it is closed to the public. Obviously this did not help Zaxcom. If I showed up, and our case that we lock all our valuable gear up in was stolen, I'd be irate and on a warpath, but that's just me. Colleen from Zaxcom had to spend most of the day on thursday dealing with the cops filling out police reports and all that. Now Lectro has to go through the same thing. There is no video cameras anywhere in the convention center. I am seriously considering bringing our own video surveillance system to have running in our booth next year. If someone walked away with all of our gear, we'd be screwed for the show.

    I have had the occasion to make acquaintances with individuals who do set up and tear down, the real sweaty muscle parts, at a convention center here in Detroit. From what they told me, everything from pilfering to blatant theft of products is a normal part of the business. I guess except for a few anal retentive event organizers and a few Barney Fife type rent-a-cops, nobody at a large convention venue gives a sh*t about it. Before I'm hit with disparaging comments about what kind of town Detroit is, I have to say that I bet that Las Vegas is that kind of town also, as is most other large cities. It is sad, very sad.

    They all are. I had a guy take a monitor from our booth during tear down right in front of me. I got it back.

    Unfortunately, a vendor has no control of their equipment. it is hands off once it hits the dock until it gets to your booth and visa versa.

    Someone would probably steal the video surveillance system as well.
